Re: Do you have any nylon stockings?

There might be some around.

You see, in the 50's nylon stockings were not quite perfected and women
still preferred to wear silk stockings, and it took a few years for women to
be won over, and what eventually won them over was the last divergence the
nylons suffered in the comparison with silk stockings. You couldn't wear
them out.
They lasted and lasted, an imperfection that the manufacturers seemed to
have overcome little by little so that today if a woman wears her nylons
more than once she feels as though she has committed a crime.
